Love the location of this hostel. The shared dormroom has unique artwork and nice decorations which i found to my liking. The receptionist Lauren is amazingly attentive and very friendly (& cute lol). Breakfast was inexpensive and the cooks/cleaning ladies were also very nice. All in all great experience. Wonderful staff ! My only suggestion is to crank up the AC a bit. The room gets a tad bit too hot depending if the door remains open.

It’s like you living in a privada house but only with a hostel price! You can lay down in the pool and watch the plan tree,super relaxing! The stuff is very friendly! Especially I like Hugo! The photographer in the hostel! He is super talented and friendly! The bed is also cozy and I had amazing conversation with my roommates! We shared all our life experience I love that! Will definitely come back again. Also I have to say that I like Santa Marta a lot! The people the view the food everything is so just perfect! 这就像你住在私人住宅,但只有宿舍价格! 您可以躺在游泳池旁观看计划树,超级放松! 东西非常友好!特别是我喜欢雨果!宿舍的摄影师!他超级有才和友善! 床很舒适,我与室友进行了很棒的交谈!我们分享了我所爱的生活经历! 肯定会再回来。 另外我不得不说我很喜欢Santa Marta! 人们看到食物的一切都是如此完美!

well located, rooms are big. nice backyard even though it's in the middle of the hostel and sometime very loud and there's no key to the room so didn't feel comfortable to leave my stuffs there. But the very good point of the experience is Diana! She's super nice, and willing to help. She called for me the bus company because i can't speak spanish, she helped me to find another hostel when i came back and the villana was full. thank you diana

Nice locationans hostel however I didn't like that you get charged for everything you use. Charged to get a towel, charged to print a passbord. I have stayed in several places and have never happened to me in the past.

Thank you for your stay and review. Printing services come at a cost of electricity, toner, etc. We charge 20 cents per page. Towels are included for private rooms. If you're in a dorm we charge less than a dollar for rental. It's a symbolic price only to keep track of towels (they used to get lost a lot when we included them). Maybe some other places where the rate is higher these ammenities are free, but we try to keep our rates at a competitive price for our guests and offer them the best experience they can have. Sorry you didn't like to pay a small fee for our services. Certainly there are other places you can print and pay less or more. Happy travels!

Good place, good location, staff good, we only stayed one night with friends. So, for example the staff save my bag per two days because we gone to costeño beach and return for the bags. We have a private room for 6 people.
